Create Volume

    You can employ MiniTool Partition Wizard to create dynamic disk volumes including Simple Volume, Spanned Volume, Striped Volume (Raid 0), Mirrored Volume (Raid 1) and Raid-5. Different volume need different precondition.

    Simple Volume: A simple volume is a dynamic volume that is made up of disk space from a single dynamic disk.
    Spanned Volume: A spanned volume is a dynamic volume consisting of disk space on more than one physical disk. You need at least two dynamic disks in addition to the startup disk to create a spanned volume.
    Striped Volume (Raid 0): A striped volume is a dynamic volume that stores data in stripes on two or more physical disks. Striped volumes offer the best performance of all the volumes that are available in Windows, but they do not provide fault tolerance.
    Mirrored Volume (Raid 1): A mirrored volume provides an identical twin of the selected volume. All data written to the mirrored volume is written to both volumes, which results in disk capacity of only 50 percent.
    Raid-5: Three hard drives, which can be IDE, SCSI or mixed structure, are entailed. All disks relevant to RAID-5 volume must be dynamic disks and operating system boot files and system files must be stored on another volume.
